Conventional Commodity: Rubber Boots

Con-ven-tion-al: adjective, (kuhn-ven-shuh-nl): ordinary rather than different or original.
Com-mod-i-ty: noun, (kuh-mod-i-tee): something of use, advantage, or value.

But they're fancy rubber boots!
I've had a solid black pair of rubber boots since I was in high school (for feeding the horses when it rains) ...let's just say they are a quarter of a century old. Yeah, rubber last a l-o-n-g time, but they were getting dry-rotted so badly that they had splits in the rubber... not so water proof anymore. So, momma got herself a new pair of boots!

Hey, it's the Little Things.

It's not what you do, it's the attitude you do it with. And your attitude in them boots gonna rock the barn!

Yessir-ee, I wear them. They do, after all, keep my feet dry when there's a gully-washer.
When buying them, it was this or solid black... I'm learning to live a little more on the edge as I get older.

Oh... RR, yes! Well, even if my attitude doesn't come through, our toddler sure likes them!

I LOVE them ! I used to have a dress with pretty much the same pattern on it when I was in high school - and I was *stylin'... let me tell you! I loved that dress, but alas... I outgrew it. ;-(

These boots would have won out over black for me too!
I recently saw some here that were covered in ladybugs, and they were just adorable!
